The Great Alexandria BBQ Embargo

DewItAll | Mar 6, 2006 11:04 PM

I had good news today and was in the mood to celebrate with a few ribs and a long nap. I decided to visit Kenny's BBQ on Duke Street for a half rack of ribs with the sauce on the side. Unfortunately, when I get their they are closed, their big refrigerator with the drinks and kimchi are gone, as is the wood pile out back. Looks like they are closed for good.

Dejected, I decided to settle for the offerings at Annette's BBQ Heaven at Van Dorn Plaza (with the Safeway). Argh!!! They are also closed. The sign is gone and it is like it never was. Two decent BBQ places in Alexandria are closed in a blink of an eye!! Sigh!

Eventually, I settle for some grub at the Four Seasons Diner. No ribs. It was okay but did not ease the ache in my heart or in the nether reaches of my stomach.

Looks like it is going to be chains for Alexandria BBQ for the foreseeable future.
